Designer I Husqvarna Sewing Machine

Designer I Husqvarna Sewing Machine
The machine has power and turns on
but the screen is frozen. I have turned it off and then back on several times but nothing changes. It will sew the straight stitch, and I have not even activated the A screen.
Thanks for your help.

Has your Designer 1 ever had the power supply replaced? Almost all Des 1's had a recall that was replacement of the power supply. Any Husqvarna Viking dealer will be able to check the power supply, or transformer, in your machine and make sure that it has been replaced. Sometimes this can be a loose connection inside the power supply.

My Designer 1 touch screen is not responding. I know how to calibrate it, but can't do even that until I can select the options on the screen. Is there a way to unlock it?

I have this information from a person who was a Husqvarna Designer expert:

When you just can't get to the menus at all:
Turn the machine off.
Then hold down the "Reverse" and "Pivot" buttons and power it back on.
You now have the setup screen.
Touch the "Needle Down" button and you will see the crosses.

Use a small blunt object like the metal end of the buttonhole foot (the stylus that

came with the machine would be better ) and
touch the centre of the crosses and each will turn green. Then click on

Original designer I and the touch screen is frozen.

The front cover will have to be removed to access the componets to find the problem... it could be as simple as a loose connection or as complicated as having to replace the touch screen. Removing the front cover is not a simple task if you do not have experience in working on this machine. I would suggest it go in to an "authorized dealer.

Machine shut off will not turn back on viking designer 1

Did you check the power cord both at the sewing machine and at the wall plug? Push them both in firmly. Check the power cord along its whole length to make sure it is not broken. Replace it if you find any serious rips in the plastic outer casing of the cord. No need for a special Husqvarna power cord - a small appliance cord with the same plugs at either end is all that is needed.

Did you hear a "popping" noise when the machine turned off? You may have a short in the transformer in which case it needs to go to the technician.

My Desiger SE embroidery machine is frozen on the start up screen

Turn the machine off. See if you can put it in update mode by pressing and holding the lower right and upper left buttons to the left of the take-up lever while turning the power back on. If you can get to update mode, download and install the latest update.
Let me know how this goes.
